I attempted to play D&D once with Aaron, but coming up with a character took too long that by the time we were going to start playing we were all too drunk, come to think of it we were already drunk when we started LOL. He is the only DM I know personally and I have always made fun of the whole D&D crowd thinking I am a Computer Nerd with coolness +5 because I know how to drag knee on a motorcycle and can accidentally wheelie, danger + 10 I can probably enter a TKD tourney and with a couple of months training do fairly good.
Daniel’s visit has sparked my curiosity for role playing games. He plays with a group of his friends and I find it very cool, he even has his own geek bag. I am not a jealous person, but I really think it would be cool to either start a group or get into one. It would be nice to tell Daniel to bring his geek bag so we can get our RPG on. Then Filegirl posted about Rodney playing with his friends, while kind of trashing geeks and their possessive girlfriends*, and she kind of made me start looking for a local group of nerds to play with or create my own.
I have a group of local anime geeks with who we meet regularly to watch anime and just chat. Some of them have become friends and we hang out whenever we get a chance. Most of them are female and they do have an RPG game going, but they are all girls and I am not about to create a Vampire in Drag to play with them (kind of exaggerating.) They have their own group and I am sure they would welcome me, but its more of a girls lusting over cute boys kind of thing.
I kind of wish I could game with the group Daniel does. They sometimes use a Firefly inspired game, which I think would be awesome to play, but I think it is mostly because I have fun talking to Daniel and hanging out would be cool. I used to play poker with my college buddies after we graduated but it went from two times a month to two times every month to not happening at all. I do enjoy poker, but I think RPG’s would be more fun… I am a programmer so calculations and logic are always being stimulated, the fantasy part not so much unless I am reading.
So here is my cry for local geeks to start (or let me join) an RPG group. Maybe it is time to go check out meet up dot com.
* Maybe I should check with the wife before going on the quest! LOL
